This was a first walking tour for me and I have to say that Wilderness Scotland exceeded all my expectations. I had the best time from start to finish. The scenery was stunning and breathtakingly beautiful and together with an excellent guide and friendly tour members, I had a perfect and most memorable trip in the wilderness of Scotland.
Accommodation & Food
The rooms in both Uig Hotel and Harris Hotel were excellent, warm and spacious with comfortable beds and clean bathrooms.
Dave was just excellent! He was friendly, funny, extremely knowledgeable in terms of what was happening in the community, history, wildlife and the places we visited. We warmed up to him immediately. He knew the trails well and he made sure the hikes were fun and challenging enough so that we get to see the real beauty of the wilderness. Although the landscape and terrain was all new to me and some of the hikes were more challenging than what I had anticipated, I am extremely happy that I had Dave as my guide because not only was he patient and experienced in guiding me through some rough trails but most of all he gave me a sense of accomplishment and it made me appreciate the beauty of the wilderness even more. He also made sure we had some culture and fun during the trip by joining us in a ceilidh in Harris, which was great fun. I had such a perfect trip thanks to Dave.
Thanks for the dances Dave!
The Bottom Line
Definitely looking forward to more trips with Wilderness Scotland! It was absolute perfection from start to finish. The brilliant guide, the delicious food, wonderful hotels, breathtaking scenery, challenging hikes and even the Scottish weather, which was surprisingly perfect with gorgeous rainbows, gave me one the most amazing weeks that I have had in my life. Thanks Wilderness Scotland, Dave, Kim & Lesley!
